NGO Urges Zamfara Governor to Clarify Name Discrepancies on Certificates for Transparency



In a press briefing in Abuja, the Association of Civil Society and Public Interest Organisations in Nigeria (CCSPION) has called on Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal, to address alleged name discrepancies found on his certificates. The organization stressed the significance of clarity for proper identification.

During the briefing, Abraham Ekokotu, the National Coordinator of CCSPION, expressed concerns about the governor’s documents bearing multiple names, causing confusion among the public.

Instances were highlighted where Governor Lawal claimed different birth years under distinct names, casting doubt on the authenticity of his records. Ekokotu noted, “Lawal’s documents present a puzzling situation, as he declared birth years of 1965 and 1969 under different names. Affidavits sworn to at the Supreme Court of Nigeria reveal conflicting identities – Dauda Muhammed Lawal and Dauda Ado Lawal.”

CCSPION underscored the need for transparency, asserting that both Nigerians and the citizens of Zamfara State deserve an explanation. Ekokotu emphasized that Governor Lawal, guided by his faith, oath of office, and moral rectitude, should clarify the discrepancies in his documents and address concerns about potential rule violations.

Simultaneously, Ekokotu urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to expose and hold accountable those individuals who may have aided and abetted any alleged corrupt practices.

He stated, “We call on the EFCC to remain steadfast in its fight against corruption in Nigeria and proceed to deal with any person who loots or launders, aids or abets another person to launder or loot from the public treasury so as to recover the looted funds and make him face the music.
